Your Hot Water System Replacement Specialists

When your existing hot water system has reached the end of its natural life, and it's time for a replacement, it's time for Plumber Near Me. We have the hot water system replacement expertise to get reliable hot water back in your home ASAP.

How Long Do Hot Water Systems Last?

Hot water systems, like any essential household appliance, provide a decent number of years worth of performance. However, like any essential household appliance, those years eventually come to an end and it becomes time to consider hot water system replacement.

So how long do you generally have before that time comes? As it happens, the answer can vary depending on the type of system you have.

  • Gas hot water systems, both storage and continuous flow, typically last between 10 to 15 years.
  • Electric hot water systems can differ. Storage systems have a similar lifespan to a gas hot water system, ranging from 10 to 15 years. On the other hand, electric instantaneous water heaters typically last between 15 to 20 years.
  • Heat pump hot water systems, which are becoming increasingly popular, have an average lifespan of 10 to 15 years similar to gas water heaters.
  • Solar hot water systems have the most impressive average lifespan of all hot water system types, lasting up to 20 to 30 years.

Regular maintenance and proper care can help extend the longevity of each of these hot water systems. This enables you to worry about the need for a new hot water system later, rather than sooner.

Hot Water Systems Installation Experts

When it comes to replacing hot water heaters, you’ll need the help of qualified professional plumbers. From the heavy lifting of an electric storage tank to the certified installation of a gas continuous flow system, it’s definitely not a DIY job. In fact, it’s illegal to install a hot water system unless you’re fully qualified to do so.

Sometimes the task is also much more than a simple replacement. Not all broken water heaters have to be replaced with the exact same type, model or brand. Perhaps you want to switch from electric hot water to solar, or upgrade to a larger capacity unit.

Some of the things to consider when installing a new hot water system include:

  • The size of your home
  • The number of bathrooms and appliances you have
  • The number of people living in the house
  • What kind of fuel you’ll be using – natural gas, solar, electric or heat pump
  • Your finances
  • Location of the installation

You’ll also need to decide what type of system you want – continuous flow or storage tanks. A Plumber Near Me expert can advise you on all of these matters and help you pick the most efficient hot water system for your needs.

We can either supply our own models from a selection of leading brands or install a new hot water heater that you have bought.

Replacing Your Gas, Solar or Electric Hot Water System

Whether your hot water unit is electric, solar, natural gas or heat pump, Plumber Near Me can provide a fast replacement. We also have specialists in each field, so you’ll have the right person for the right job.

Every installation job comes with its own unique challenges, even a simple like-for-like replacement.

For example, gas hot water replacement may include adding new gas copper piping or powerpoint installation for electric ignition.

Replacing a solar hot water system also includes work on solar panels as well as the storage tank. Roof-mounted units also require additional structural support.

There will also be additional work if you choose to upgrade from an electric storage tank to a gas instantaneous water heater.

With so many potential outcomes it’s always necessary to hire a licensed plumber or gas fitter. Plumber Near Me has both, so don’t hesitate to call us today.
